Plaxico Burress -- Punished in Prison

5/3/2010 4:12 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0503_plaxico_buress_BN_Getty_01Former New York Giants wide receiver Plaxico Burress caught a serious punishment during his stint behind bars -- dude lost his recreational time privileges for one month after lying to a guard.

According to the New York Post, Plaxico was smacked with a one-month ban from recreational time at the Oneida Correctional Facility back in November after he allegedly told a guard that he had secured permission to make a phone call ... when in fact, he had not.

Aside from the rec. time ban, Plaxico -- who's doing a two-year term for that whole "I shot myself in the leg" thing -- was also grounded from phone privileges for one week as well.

Plax is scheduled to be released in the Spring of 2011.
